How will I know if I got into a class? You will receive an email with the event details after your registration has been completed. If you did not provide an email address with your registration, you will receive a confirmation by mail. If you have any questions call 734-677-5060 or email ecdevelopment@wccnet.edu.

What is your refund policy if I cannot attend a class as planned?  Refunds are only processed upon receipt of a request to withdraw from a class or when a class is officially canceled by the college.

The following steps are necessary to withdraw from a class:

  1. A request to withdraw must be submitted prior to the start of class. No refunds are given once the class starts.
  2. Call 734-677-5060 or e-mail ecdevelopment@wccnet.edu.
  3. Include your name, the class title, class number and class start date in your request to withdraw.
     

Please allow seven to 10 business days for approved refunds to be processed. Refunds will be issued using the same method as original payment, unless an electronic voucher to register for another class is granted. 

Please note: Refunds for tuition and mandatory or materials fees will not be issued if the request to withdraw is received fewer than three days prior to the start of class.

Are classes canceled due to low enrollment? In most cases, we require at least the minimum number of students for a class to run. You will be notified by email or telephone if your class is canceled. WCC reserves the right to cancel classes with insufficient enrollment. 

When is a class canceled?  WCC makes every effort to maintain the schedule of classes as announced in our catalog. However, there are times when it is necessary to cancel classes, change instructors, switch rooms or combine classes without previous announcement. WCC is not bound by printing errors in our publication.

How do I use this website? You are able to perform several functions on the website including:

  • Browse our classes online:  Click “Browse” from the left menu bar. Next click on “All Classes” from the drop- down menu to see all classes WCC Economic and Community Development is offering. You can also select a category from the drop-down menu to see only classes offered under that category. Once you are on the category page select the subcategory you are interested in. All classes offered under that category will appear on the screen.
  • Sign in: If you are new to our site, you must create a new student profile. Creating a profile provides you with your own personal, password-protected account.

Choose “Household Profile” if you will be registering for multiple people. Follow the prompts on the screen to create your account. When building your profile, items marked with a red asterisk are required. We highly recommend using your email address as your login. The demographic information collected is optional and is used by the College strictly for planning and statistical purposes. You will receive a copy of your username and password via email for future reference. Once you create your student profile (and on subsequent visits after you sign in), you will see menu options that allow you to edit your profile, check your current registrations and view your transactions and transcript.

Once you are on the class listing page, click the green title of the class you are interested in. This will take you to the class page. Select “Add to Cart” to register for the class.
